My name is Mrs. Marsh and I am the new visual arts teacher at Blakeney Elementary School! Whether you are a distance learner or an in-class student, there will be several art projects and resources available to you in the Activities at Blakeney Google Classroom! This will be your one stop shop to ask me questions, practice vocabulary, and access instructions for our projects. Since we are all trying to work around this pandemic, projects and activities will be centered around the art materials you have available at home and from your school supplies list. This means you will have the option to adapt many of the projects based on the supplies you have access to, or substitute with a different project depending on the circumstances. This policy applies especially to full time distance learners. You will submit one project each week to my section on the Activity Classes at Blakeney Elementary Google Classroom. Parents, I strongly encourage you to purchase a mixed media sketch book for your child to use for art assignments and for personal creativity. Walmart sells them for under $10. There is also a store called 5 Below next to Kohl's in Evans that sells art supplies, sketchbooks and other craft items. Everything is $5 or less. The same sketchbooks can be used next year also. Art is more than a school subject. It is a positive outlet for creativity, emotions and stress relief. This will be a fun year and I look forward to creating with you!
